Psalms 901The Praise of a Canticle, of David. Whoever dwells with the assistance of the Most High will abide in the protection of the God of heaven. 2He will say to the Lord, “You are my supporter and my refuge.” My God, I will hope in him. 3For he has freed me from the snare of those who go hunting, and from the harsh word. 4He will overshadow you with his shoulders, and you will hope under his wings. 5His truth will surround you with a shield. You will not be afraid: before the terror of the night, 6before the arrow flying in the day, before the troubles that wander in the darkness, nor of invasion and the midday demon. 7A thousand will fall before your side and ten thousand before your right hand. Yet it will not draw near you. 8So then, truly, you will consider with your eyes, and you will see the retribution of sinners. 9For you, O Lord, are my hope. You have set the Most High as your refuge. 10Disaster will not draw near to you, and the scourge will not approach your tabernacle. 11For he has given his Angels charge over you, so as to preserve you in all your ways. 12With their hands, they will carry you, lest you hurt your foot against a stone. 13You will walk over the asp and the king serpent, and you will trample the lion and the dragon. 14Because he has hoped in me, I will free him. I will protect him because he has known my name. 15He will cry out to me, and I will heed him. I am with him in tribulation. I will rescue him, and I will glorify him. 16I will fill him with length of days. And I will reveal to him my salvation.
